Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Hannah Waldie
You are two individuals, and your wedding day should reflect that. Grays Court is truly unique and so much more than just a wedding venue and we certainly don’t believe in one size fits all. You and your guests will enjoy exclusive use of the majestic house and beautiful garden for 24 or 48 hours and we will be with you every step of the way. Kind regards, Hannah

The venue was just perfect!
All our guests were extremely complimentary and impressed with the venue itself, all the staff and of course the amazing food! Please do pass our thanks on to the kitchen team. The venue was just perfect as we knew it would be, and everything ran so well - we’ll truly miss our more regular visits, perhaps we‘ll have to get booked in for our anniversary!

The most wonderful time at Grays Court
Our friends and family truly had the most wonderful time at Grays Court and were so impressed by everything. Everyone has such fond memories of the wedding already and couldn't have been happier with the venue, the rooms, and everyone's kind service.

We were told over...
We were told over and over 'best wedding ever' as guests departed - and you can't have a better recommendation than that! The guests were bowled over by the venue and then constantly surprised by the friendly, efficient and attentive staff - who genuinely cared that they enjoyed the day. No request was too much trouble. A wonderful day in a wonderful setting - first class all round! Oh and I nearly forgot to mention the food and service - wow! Exceptional in every way!

We had a perfect wedding day at Grays Court.It is a beautiful venue.The gardens are exceptionally well maintained and we were lucky enough to have our ceremony outside.Grays Court were extremely flexible so we could have whatever type of wedding we wanted! Nothing was too much trouble. Rhiannon was a pleasure to deal with throughout, replying promptly and filling me with confidence. She ran the wedding day to perfection.We felt we got excellent value for money given the calibre of the venue.

Rhiannon the events manager was absolutely superb from start to finish. Her communication was fantastic and she was really accommodating. The bar and waiting staff were also amazing and had a nothing was too much trouble attitude." The food was fantastic and as myself and 3 other guests has very specific dietary requirements they were still able to make us the most delishous meal. The bedrooms are stunning and most of my guests commented that it is the nicest venue they have ever been to."

Rhiannon...
Rhiannon and the team were very accommodating to our wants and needs for our big day and we were not disappointed. Everything ran like clockwork! The decor was simple but stunning and each room had a different atmosphere (the same can be said for the bedrooms). The long table set-up in the Long Hall made it feel very special and a talking point.
